At the beginning of the 20th century, condensed milk was used more than fresh milk because it was more stable during storage and posed less of a health risk than fresh milk. The milk directly from the cow was full of bacteria. Milk not consumed within a few hours spoiled quickly in the heat.
You can store sweetened condensed milk for a long time without refrigeration. Thanks to its high sugar content, it is also a great ingredient for strengthening foods and their more caloric nutrition for those who need it.
For example, to strengthen your morning oatmeal, just 2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk will give your food another 90 calories and 2 grams of protein.
Condensed milk can be used as sweetened milk for coffee or custard. To prepare the sweetened milk just add 800ml to get 1100ml of sweetened milk.
